5 Of The Best Fondue Restaurants In Manchester

Published . By Kay Field.

With days getting colder and nights drawing in, fondue season is upon us. But when new cheesy dishes are popping up all over the northern capital, it can be hard to scout out the crème de la crème of gooey goodness. That's where we come in. We’ve had a sniff around the melting pot of offerings to bring you our guide to the best places for fondue in Manchester. 

The Oast House 

Covered in fairy lights and with a tonne of great beers and ales to choose from, this cosy Spinningfields spot is already widely regarded as one of the best pubs around. Add on a roaring fireplace and their sharing ‘fabulous fondue’ and you’re onto a winner with The Oast House. For every pot you gobble up, the restaurant will fund a meal for a local person in need - and that, for us, is reason enough to nestle yourself in for an afternoon of dipping and dunking.

The Oast House is giving us all the food feels with their fondue sharing board.

Albert's Schloss

If you like your fondue boozy and with a side order of entertainment, then bier palace and party spot Albert's Schloss is the one for you. Their gourmet sharer of melted gruyère, emmental and fontina cheese is laced with white wine and kirsch (cherry brandy, swoon); topped off by slithers of garlic, pickles and potatoes. From pretzels to schnitzel, strudel and great sloshing steins to wash it all down, this truly Bavarian foodie experience is bringing Oktoberfest party vibes to Albert Square year-round.

Bombay To Mumbai

Who said fondue had to be plain ol' cheese? There are no rules here. Head a little out of town to Bramhall and you'll uncover this hidden gem of authentic plates taking the famous street food dish pav bhaji and giving it a twist. Bombay To Mumbai will have you dunking handmade soft dinner rolls in their Indian fondue, a blend of mashed veggies, spices, cream, milk and cheese, in no time at all.

Cocoa Tree

Serving up brunch and sweet treats in their Chorlton cafe are artisan chocolatiers Cocoa Tree. Fondue fans needn't fret because there's a glorious chocolate version dished up with pillowy marshmallows and fresh fruit here. Using strictly natural flavours and sustainable ingredients in all their food, this quaint spot leaves you assured that an expert hand with an eco-friendly attitude has whipped up your grub. Topping it off? The 'best mocha in Manchester'.

The Laundrette
